Dental implant treatment is a process that involves the replacement of tooth roots with metal screws like posts and the replacement of damaged or missing teeth with artificial teeth that appear and operate almost identical to natural teeth. These implants form a strong relationship with the jawbone, enabling the dentist or oral surgeon to put new teeth known as crowns. Dental implants are a viable option if you are missing one or more permanent teeth. They are designed to mimic the appearance, feel, and function of genuine teeth.
